The Simple Life: A Value Liberals Share With Libertarians
By Everett Sizemore
Hope For The Best. Prepare For The Worst.
John Silveira writes about “The Coming American Dictatorship“ for Backwoods Home Magazine, which could generally be described as Mother Earth News for Libertarians. Of course, that applies to the days when “Mother Earth” was a meatier, more independent publication.
We’re not talking about the kind of pseudo/neo-Libertarians you see at tea parties; the ones who don’t know the difference between fascism and socialism; the ones who are just afraid of whatever Glenn Beck tells them to be afraid of this week. Mr. Silveira is a true Libertarian; an intelligent, articulate, independent American who subscribes to a certain ideology after having informed himself and come to his own conclusions. And although his political and economic ideologies differ greatly from the average Mother Earth News reader, they may have more in common than you would think. For example, topics like renewable energy, self-sufficiency, simple living and environmental stewardship.

Book Description Polity Press, United Kingdom, 1992. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This major new book is a wide-ranging analysis of the emergence and development of liberalism, from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Bellamy examines the evolution of liberal ideas in Britain, France, Germany and Italy. In doing so he discusses the work of Mill, Green, Durkheim, Weber and Pareto among others, and situates their work firmly within their respective historical contexts, illustrating the contingency of many of the social and moral assumptions underlying liberal thought. The book also examines critically the elaboration of liberal ideas in the work of contemporary political philosophers such as Hayek, Nozick and Rawls. Bellamy shows how the liberalisms of these writers rest on social views and moral intuitions that are now anachronistic and untenable. Seller Inventory # AAH9780745610702
